    Are compressed air cans at all worth using with an airbrush?

    Found some old treasure

    Going through an rarely used closet and found these. The Harrier had instruction sheet and decals, the Lotus did not. Stopped working on them and forgot. Found decals and instructions for the Lotus online, so I can complete. Like a nice gift I just found.

    Another old age pensioner with time on his hands. Starting with a 1/72 Higgins boat, the same my old Dad piloted in June '44. Nice to be back.
